before & after
Smiles made just for you
This patient of ours had rampant cavities caused by sipping on energy drinks throughout the day. The first step was to work with him to stop further damage by changing the bacterial flora in his mouth from the unhealthy, cavity causing species to a healthy species—thus reducing the risk of getting future cavities.
We then digitally created a smile for him, allowing us both to create a template for his future smile. Our Del Mar dental team replaced the ravaged tooth structure with well sealed porcelain veneers. We worked through the shape, color, and characterization of his smile to create a smile which was healthier in appearance but not too bright or “too perfect.” The smile complemented his skin tone and personality. He has remained cavity-free for over 5 years now!
How Does it Work?
Cosmetic Treatment with Veneers
Veneers are typically made of porcelain and they are designed to fit perfectly over the front surfaces of your teeth. By covering up your enamel, veneers can treat a wide variety of different cosmetic issues, ranging from uneven and gapped teeth to slightly-crooked, stained or misshapen teeth. Veneers are strong and durable, and they are a great long-term option to improve the aesthetics of your smile.
What Can I Expect
The Veneer Treatment Process
Once Dr. Pizzi approves you for treatment, we can typically complete your procedure in just two visits. At your first appointment, a small amount of enamel will be removed from your teeth to prepare them for veneers. This is done to ensure that your veneers fit seamlessly and look natural. Then, images and impressions of your teeth will be taken and sent to our partner dental lab.
It will take about 2-3 weeks for your veneers to be built, so we will attach a set of temporary veneers for you to wear in the meantime. Once your permanent veneers arrive at our Del Mar office, Dr. Pizzi will check them to ensure that the fit is perfect, then bond each one into place using dental cement.
Benefits of Veneers
- Veneers are extremely versatile and can drastically improve your smile in just two short appointments over a period of 2-3 weeks.
- These dental prostheses are extremely durable and stain-resistant, and they have a long lifespan compared to other cosmetic treatments.
- We use high quality materials and modern technology to ensure that your veneers are completely indistinguishable from your natural teeth.
- Veneers do not require any special care beyond maintaining proper oral hygiene and avoiding particularly hard foods.
Cost & Durability
How Long Will Veneers LasT?
With proper care, you can expect your veneers to last 10-15 years or longer. To ensure that your veneers last as long as possible, be sure to brush and floss properly, and see Dr. Pizzi for an oral exam every six months. It’s also good to avoid chewing non-food objects or hard foods with your front teeth to prevent chipping or dislodging of your veneers.
The cost of veneers depends on the number of factors, including how many teeth you would like to treat and your oral health. To get an accurate cost estimate, schedule a consultation with Dr. Pizzi in Del Mar today!
